Local Farmers with Sustainable Practices
Cobblestone Farmers Market is open for their second season on the cobblestones at Third Street and Patterson (across the street from Krankies Coffee). Many have eagerly awaited the reopening of this all-local, producers-only market that features mostly organic farmers and all are screened for sustainable, healthy and humane practices. The Cobblestone Farmers Market is operated by Cultivate Piedmont, a program of the Carolina Farm Stewardship Association.
Each Tuesday, a different local chef/restaurant volunteers to serve up local fare with proceeds benefiting a local charity. Tomorrow will feature Triad Community Kitchen with a menu of: Texas Style BBQ Beef Brisket Panini; Cheddar, Watermelon BBQ Sauce, Creamy Slaw; Market Basket Salad fresh from the Cobblestone vendors w/citrus sherry vinaigrette; curried butternut squash soup w/crème fraiche, assorted gourmet cookies.
Market Hours: Tuesdays 10am-1pm
